The quietude and inner investigation of retreat practice can seem out of place when our world and our life seem to be asking for a wholehearted engagement. However, it is within the safety and quiet of retreat practice where we uncover the wisdom that frees the heart from habits of attachment, anger, and fear. It is this freedom from reactivity that allows the heart to meet all the joys and sorrows in and around us with wisdom and love. What the world needs is exactly the same as what our own hearts need—understanding how to be intimate, caring, responsive and unburdened by the very real suffering in the world. This is the liberation that we all seek, and this is the work of retreat practice. This retreat will include daily talks, guided awareness and compassion meditations, mindful qigong sessions, and opportunities for small group and individual practice interviews.
